Life throws all sorts of challenges our way. We expect to have an easy ride, but those of us who have been around the block a couple of times know that there will be bumps along the way.
We weather the storms, we emerge stronger from trials, we develop character from adversity and we need to appreciate that the tough times help make us the strong and resilient women we are today.
I'm proud of my battle scars, I'm proud that I've come through some minor and major hiccups along life's road and I don't want to gloss over that. Let's appreciate the hurdles as they come along and learn from them and be proud of the person they've made us into.
